In the thick of Indias Coronoavirus Pandemic, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has come up with a very thoughtful and generous offer for the ones suffering from coronavirus. They have decided to offer the ‘serai’ inn in Gurudwara Majnu Ka Tila situated on the banks of river Yamuna for setting up quarantine facilities for coronavirus infected patients.
The Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) on Monday wrote to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal offering the “Sarai” (inn) at Gurudwara Majnu Ka Tila Sahib to be used as a quarantine facility for those affected by COVID-19.
The DGSMC also said that “langar” (free food) will be provided by gurudwaras in the city, to the needy and those affected by the epidemic.
In the letter to the CM, DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa said, “We offer to provide DSGMC Sarai of Gurudwara Majnu Ka Tilla Sahib as quarantine facility and provision of langar for the poor and needy people when and where it is required in Delhi.”
“DSGMC will provide separate rooms for heath staff, ample parking in Gurdwara premises and the safest and secure environment.”
“In order to ensure that the poor families are not left without food due to lack of work, we are ready to distribute langar in food packets,” Mr. Sirsa added.
Moreover, the gurudwara authorities will also provide free meals (langar) to the patients as well as the medics and extend their help in any matter concerned.
